SUPER ARCHITECTS  Serving Architectures' CounterCulture

Site plan vs. Site visit πŸ€”, not nearly the same; beware of designing off site plans and start by visiting the site first πŸ‘‰πŸΌ see/feel/live/be the site before trying to change it // #drone pc: @free_fernando_romero

#Researchers from #Switzerland ’s ETH #Zurich University will use #robots and #3Dprinters to #design and #build a pioneering three-storey #house at a local research and #innovation campus.

Eight #professors from #ETH Zurich are working with business partners to build the #DFAB House, which the team claims will be β€œthe first house in the world to be designed, planned and built using predominantly digital processes”. The aim of DFAB House is to allow the team to test new #building and #energy #technologies under real-life conditions. These include the robotically #fabricated mesh-moulding process, which is the first to make the transition from research to usable #architectural #application.

A team of #researchers from the #Georgia #Institute of #Technology have developed a way to use #3Dprinters to #create #objects capable of expanding dramatically that could someday be used in applications ranging from #space missions to #biomedical #devices.
The new objects use #tensegrity, a #structural #system of #floating rods in #compression and cables in continuous #tension. The researchers fabricated the struts from shape memory polymers that #unfold when heated //

#LEGO πŸ‘ΎπŸ™ // @thewhyfactory_twf developed and led by founding partner Winy Maas, celebrates 10 years of work this summer.

Since its foundation, the research institute/global think-tank based at Delft University of Technology has focused on issues related to the development of our cities. It prizes a trial-and-error process, where the parameters and end goals are as flexible as the questions being asked. The exciting journey leads to spectacular (and sometimes unexpected) outcomes.
.
The Why Factory aims to engage the public in a debate about the future of their own cities, and has done so across the world through a variety of lectures, exhibitions, workshops, and publications. @mvrdv

Clever use of the projector πŸ–Œ// #pinup @mollyminot

#MobileHouse can fold and unfold in just 10 mins? Doubt it, but cool.

@stefano_boeri breaks ground for #EndorCity, #China's first "#Green #Forest" that fights air!

When your out #exploring the #builtenvironment but @youscaredstiff is catching buildings 🚴🏼🏚 // People forget that #Architecture is for everyone, just in different ways.
